I accidentally took the wrong pill this morning and as a result I was overly subdued for the first half of the day. It's the first time that I've ever done that and I had no idea what to expect, and as a matter of fact, I wasn't expecting anything at all. I realized soon enough that I couldn't get the show on the road in my usual upbeat way. I even started pondering the meaning of life and we certainly can't have that! I have no real desire to answer that question. Thank goodnes I realized it was only a matter of too many chemicals and all I had to do was wait for them to leave my system.
The fact that I took the wrong pill does say something about my state of mind and the fact that I was preoccupied when I took it and had other things on my mind. I had just ordered a new mobile phone with a touch screen and a million Mbs. I was in need of one because I still had a very primitive one without a subscription and I missed one very much when I was in Emmen three weeks ago and practically incommunicado. The new one is going to be delivered tomorrow morning and I'll spend some time reading the instruction booklet because I'm a nerd and want to do these things right.
I took a lovely nap this afternoon that was just long enough to reset all the controls. I still don't sleep that many hours at night and usually have to catch up about once a week or so in the afternoon. As a result of that nap, I am now running late and should be fixing dinner and Tyke is looking at me as if he's trying to levitate me out of my chair and into the kitchen to peel the potatoes. He thinks dinnertime is the most exciting time of the day and I just can't imagine why. He is too short to counter surf so it must be the end result that he is interested in.
I rarely get down but if I do I must remember "the unbearable lightness of being." I finally understand the title of that book although I had been catching rare glimpses of the meaning in the past. It is lightness with an ache in your heart but lightness nevertheless. When I think of it, I am instantly a light weight, downy feather floating in a soft breeze in the lazy afternoon sun.
